Despite being well liked by the organization, Munchak’s 22-26 overall record and the teams 7-9 2013 record has resulted in the Titans decision to go in a different direction. It was also Munchak’s unwillingness to make adjustments to his assistant coaching staff, primarily firing offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains that resulted in his future with the team coming to an abrupt in.
Titans’ general manager Ruston Webster addressed the firing with the following statement:
“The last week has been a difficult time trying to navigate through many issues to find the best resolution for this franchise moving forward. Tough choices were presented to all sides and the end result was to part ways and move forward without Mike. We will immediately begin a search for a new head coach.”
The firing was yet another in a long line of head coaches who lost their jobs following the season and the Titans are expected to immediately be in the running for some of the sought after coaches who are looking for head-coaching jobs.
Mike Munchak, who has been with the Oilers/Titans organization for more than 30 years, was previously considered as a top candidate for the Penn State head-coaching job.
